We all found the trip to Samana Bay very nice. We were picked up on time and took the bus to the marina, where we were then taken over to Samana Bay by boat. Once there, we had time to enjoy the beach. Afterwards there was a rich lunch. Then we went on by boat and transport for horse riding through a jungle where we came to a great waterfall. All in all, a successful excursion. We would definitely recommend it.

It was wonderful ! Driver was on time , there was plenty of things to do , snorkel with stingray and sharks, kayak, paddle , massage etc .. there was a bar with drinks and food. I really loved the fact that you could do what you wanted the whole time , not having to follow a group around. Only cons : no social distance at all on the boat, it was packed.

Very beautiful trip. Catalina is beautiful. The only thing to critique would be the pick up and organisation. We waited a long time, had to change busses at a gas station... it waisted a lot of time...

We had a great time with 1 team explosive atmosphere guaranteed. Very nice crew staff. I recommend this activity with my eyes closed.
